LOL I am seriously glad you managed to mess up....otherwise you'd make this look way too simple for anyone to do. The tricks I bet were the same I have used for a long time and am SUPER glad you managed to get through it all......don't give up your secret either!!

I'm really sure the pictures certainly do not do it any justice at all........maybe we can all see it in person, once we get a Des Moines meet set here soon. Not only have you put a lot of hard work and effort into this but you were kind enough to share it with all of us.

That is what being an enthusiast is all about buddy........:cheers :

Keep it up.........can't wait to see what the blue one is gonna look like next!!

Well decided to get to work on the brakes on my blue car, so stripped them down and now figuring out how to remove the rust the green way! So far I have used baking soda mixed with lemon juice on the rear and it worked very well, that was just soaking over night Getting some white vinegar and lemon juice and baking soda and gonna come up with something to see if it works better but so far so good, I also ordered a rebuild kit for my calipers so ill be powdercoating and rebuilding them

Well I have 1 rear caliper rebuilt as of now went pretty well, the rear will be the hardest to do so im doing those first! Also took the black sol out for a drive and my clutch line blew out so I fixed that and put the new flat black hood on, took it back out for another test drive and lost a bolt from my turbo to manifold, so I need to find a replacement for that and I also got the alignment done today!
